This vintage jacket was made in 1949 by the Gibson Wear Well Company of 164 Washington Street, Boston, MA. It is a four button jacket, single breasted, peak lapel. Unlike a uniform / workwear jacket, it has no lapel buttonhole, breast pocket, or any pockets at all for that matter. The buttons are all silvertone, marked “FD”. It has a United Garment Workers of American union tag. It is marked a size 42, but its chest measurement of 44″ puts it more in the territory of a size 40.
Shoulder to Shoulder: 19″
